BEA Announces Eclipse Plug-Ins for JRockit and AspectJ 5 Project Plans

New Efforts Build On Past BEA Contributions to the Eclipse Community

BEA has announced new Eclipse plug-ins for its JRockit JVM, as well as the merger of AspectWerkz into the existing AspectJ Eclipse Project. The plans, says the company, are designed to benefit both the BEA and Eclipse communities "by helping to increase the flexibility of the Eclipse framework and supporting industry convergence around Eclipse as a single development platform in order to help make Java development easier."

The AspectWerkz-AspectJ merger is designed to provide a single unified platform for aspect-oriented programming, helping to accelerate the rate of progress in AOP.

The delivery of the first combined release, called AspectJ 5, in the first half of 2005, is expected to contain full support for the new features of Java 5, and support for an annotation-based development style in addition to the more familiar AspectJ code-based style. The AspectJ Development Tools (AJDT) for Eclipse is slated to be enhanced to provide support for the annotation style. BEA is building in deep levels of support for AOP in the JRockit JVM.

BEA's plans for Eclipse plug-ins for the BEA WebLogic JRockit JVM involve creating new plug-ins for Java profiling and Memory Leak Diagnosis, based on similar tools distributed with BEA WebLogic JRockit, whuch BEA describes as one the world?s top-performing Java Virtual Machines.

JRockit?s built-in functionality is designed to help enable profiling and memory leak diagnosis that can be used in production systems while applications are running at full speed, without material cost to performance. To be distributed to the Eclipse community at no cost, the new plug-ins can provide innovative profiling and memory leak diagnosis functionality for production systems running at full speed.

These new efforts, says BEA, builds on its past contributions to the Eclipse community. In June 2004, BEA announced Project Pollinate, an Eclipse-based development environment and toolset. Project Pollinate is designed to integrate with Apache Beehive and help enable developers to more easily develop and deploy service-based and J2EE-based applications.

I wonder why BEA didn't join already when launching Pollinate in the summer?

What's the current state of Pollinate, anyone know?

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How?

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
